Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Headed to desert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy is expected to sign a two-year contract with the Cardinals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Sweezy has suited up for 88 of 96 regular season games since entering the league in 2012, and started in 78 of said contests. The veteran guard will bring a source of much-needed reliability to Arizona's offensive line, which struggled to overcome a slew of injuries in 2018.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Ready for wild-card round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (foot) is officially active for Saturday's wild-card game against the Cowboys.

Sweezy was listed as questionable after sitting out Week 17 with a foot sprain. The 29-year-old should take up his usual starting post at left guard for the Seahawks.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Questionable for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (foot) is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's wild-card game against the Cowboys, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Sweezy sat out Seattle's win over the Cardinals in Week 17 while nursing a foot sprain, which was initially feared to be a multi-week injury. It appears that Sweezy has a shot to suit up versus the Cowboys, but he'll be a game-time decision. Ethan Pocic will slot into the starting lineup if Sweezy is unable to go.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Won't play Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Sweezy is nursing a sprain that could keep him sidelined for multiple weeks, so his lack of availability is unsurprising. Ethan Pocic will draw another start as Sweezy attempts to get healthy to make a postseason return.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Could be facing multi-week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (foot) is facing a sprain that could keep him sidelined for three to four weeks, but coach Pete Carroll is optimistic regarding the guard's potential availability for the first round of the playoffs, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Sweezy sprained his foot during the Seahawks' Week 16 victory over the Chiefs and has already been deemed doubtful for Sunday's regular-season finale, but the team hopes to have him back for a potential wild-card matchup. Expect Ethan Pocic to draw another start Sunday if Sweezy is ultimately ruled out, which is the likely scenario at this point as Seattle looks ahead to the postseason.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Officially listed as doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (foot) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Sweezy sustained a foot sprain during last week's win over the Chiefs, and is considered day-to-day. The Seahawks have clinched a playoff berth, and could elect to rest Sweezy so he can get healthy for the postseason.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Remains day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (foot) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Sweezy sustained a foot sprain during Sunday's win over the Chiefs and begins the week sitting out practice. According to Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic, the Seahawks consider the 29-year-old day-to-day, so he'll hopefully be able to return to practice Thursday or Friday.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Nursing sprained foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (foot) suffered a sprained foot during Sunday's 38-31 win over the Chiefs, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

Sweezy exited Sunday's game with what initially appeared to be a significant ankle injury, but it has now been officially labeled as a foot sprain. With the Seahawks already missing a substantial amount of offensive linemen due to injury, Sweezy will do his best to recover in time for the playoffs.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Leaves with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday night's contest, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Sweezy exited to the lockerrom after injuring his ankle. The Seahawks are missing a variety of offensive linemen at the moment, making this injury particularly unlucky in a critical matchup.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (ankle) returned to practice this week. "Sweez had a really good week," head coach Pete Carroll said. "This is his first week officially back practicing, and he did really well. With Fluke being down, he worked on the right side as well as his drill work on the other side. He's showing us that flexibility, which is good. It's really good to have Sweez back out there."

Sweezy injured his ankle during the opening days of training camp but now appears to be healthy. The sixth-year vet is expected to serve as a key backup along the Seahawks' offensive line in 2018.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Nursing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy suffered an ankle injury last week, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

It appears that Sweezy has been sidelined since rolling his ankle last week, and given he's been out for that long, chances are he will not play in Thursday's preseason opener.

Seahawks' J.R. Sweezy: Lands in Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy was claimed off waivers by the Seahawks on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Sweezy rejoins Seattle, where he spent the 2012-15 seasons, after being waived by Tampa. The 29-year-old missed the entirety of the Buccaneers' offseason program with an unspecified leg injury, but appears to now be healthy. Sweezy adds depth to a Seahawks O-line that was ranked 27th of 32 teams by Pro Football Focus in 2017.

J.R. Sweezy: Released by Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy was released by the Buccaneers on Friday, Jenna Laine of ESPN reports.

Sweezy missed Tampa's entire offseason program while recovering from an unspecified leg injury, and the team waited until he was healthy before letting him go. The offensive lineman will now return to the free-agent market two years removed from signing a five-year, $32.5 million contract with the Buccaneers. Playing 14 games in 2017, Sweezy graded out as Pro Football Focus' 64th-ranked guard out of 80 qualifiers.

Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Not cleared of injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (lower leg) has not yet been cleared of his injury, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Sweezy suffered a leg injury late in the year, forcing him to go on injured reserve with two games left in the season. The 28-year-old's return will be key if the Buccaneers hope to turn around their offensive line play in 2018, after the team stalled with the sixth-fewest team rushing yards and allowed 40 sacks last season.

Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Headed to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter said that Sweezy, who suffered a lower-leg injury in Monday's 24-21 loss to the Falcons, would be placed on injured reserve, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Buccaneers' offensive line was already one of the NFL's weaker units, so the loss of Sweezy may only further hurt the team's pass-protection and run-blocking efforts. Joe Hawley will likely serve as Sweezy's primary replacement at right guard over the Buccaneers' final two games of the season.

Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Suffers lower leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy sustained a lower leg injury and has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against the Falcons.

While Sweezy was originally listed as questionable to play due to a shin injury, it isn't exactly clear what sort of injury removed him from play Monday. In his absence, Tampa Bay moved Evan Smith to center while inserting Joe Hawley at right guard.

Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Will suit up Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (shin) is listed as active for Monday night's game against the Falcons, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Sweezy finished the week with a pair of limited practices and was listed as questionable, but he will give it a go Monday. The 28-year-old should slot in at right guard for the Buccaneers, per usual.

Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers have listed Sweezy (shin) as questionable for Monday's divisional tilt versus the Falcons.

Sweezy has logged consecutive limited workloads at practice after missing Thursday's altogether. The offensive lineman is looking like a true game-time decision Monday.

Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Avoids injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (knee) is not present on the Buccaneers' injury report for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Sweezy finished the week as a full practice participant to avoid the questionable designation. The 28-year-old played against the Jets in Week 10 after a similar practice outlook and is ready to go for this week's game in Miami.

Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Limited in Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Sweezy also began Week 10 prep with limited participation in the first two practices of the week before working up to an unrestricted session on Friday. He could well be headed in the same direction this week, as the Buccaneers appear to be taking extra caution with the veteran's knees in the latter half of the season. The final two practice reports of the week should shed much more light on Sweezy's status for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Dolphins.
